Hi all.

I have enabled auditing for our main shared folder (and its subfolders) to log success events on file or folder deletion however when I check the security log in event viewer it is not reporting any of these even over the last couple of months and there should be a good few of them by now.

Auditing was set as principal: everyone, special permissions of: delete and delete subfolders and files.

Appreciate any help with this
